Von Miller is a must in Rd 1

This guy won the BUTKUS this year and plays in the 3-4 as an outside linebacker.
He has 10 sacks with a game left to play (2 sacks against the SOONERS)

Von Miller + Patrick Willis =

This is the next SHAWN MERRIMAN!!!

Tired of seeing opposing quaterbacks throw for 300 yds against our pathetic pass rush???

Tired of seeing Lawson and Haralson locked up in the arms of an O-TACKLE??

Than draft VON MILLER!!!








Miller is pretty good but I'd be worried about him keeping up that level of play in the NFL with his small frame. Comparing him to Merriman is silly. Shawne was a beast. Miller is like 240 lbs.

I'd much rather draft Robert Quinn.

Miller is probably a second round pick.

He's too skinny like Manny Lawson.

I'm sure if he's there at the end of the first the Pats will grab him, even tho they do have the 33rd pick.

The guy is supposed to be 6ft 3, your making him sound like a midget. I don't think 6-3 and 240 or so pounds is small for a OLB

I dunno if this means anything as it is so early in the process but Kiper had him in his top 12 overall in a ESPN "on the clock special" last week
People are scared of his size, just like they were with Dumervil. Someone will scoop him up later in the first and he'll be a steal for them.

he is more of a manny lawson then elvis dumervil. Yes I agree he is a better passrusher but he is tall and skinny, he is 6'3 240. Elvis is 5'11 250 something there is a big difference.

Dumervil is not even 6 ft and Miller is 6-3

Lawson played DE in college and never played OLB while Miller played LB the whole time..........

No, my point is that people let measurables scare them off. These guys are elite pass rushers and dominated their competition. Yet, because their body isn't ideal, they assume their game won't translate to the next level.

Pass rushing is a skill that some people just excel at naturally. We tend to draft DEs that project well at OLB, with the assumption that they can be taught to become effective pass rushers; however, it an extremely difficult skill to learn. Doesn't seem easier to teach a natural pass rusher to stand up than it is to teach a natural OLB to become a pass rusher?
